Safety Barriers in the Food Industry

Food; everybody needs it so it makes sense that food production, food storage and food distribution is a vast industry. Within that industry, there is a need to ensure that goods, people and infrastructure are safe.

Boplan can help. Our safety solutions are in place in food companies across the globe and there’s a good reason why. Not only are our products some of the most innovative and effective on the market but we can also provide fully customised solutions.


Our work with Crop’s

As an example of our flexible safety solutions, we want to tell you about our work with Crop’s.

Crop’s produce freshly frozen fruit, vegetables and ready meals. They needed our help protecting multiple areas at their headquarters in Belgium.

One area that needed protecting was the pallet conveyor handling system in the freezing area of the warehouse. They needed to stop the system being damaged by forklifts and other warehouse traffic.

Our TB Triple Super and TB Double safety barriers were perfect for the protection of the pallet conveyors and our Bo Super Bollards provided extra protection for the edges of protection lines. We combined TB Plus barriers with SG swing gates for walkways and pedestrian crossings.

To avoid pallets being placed on the border of loading docks our TB 200 flexible safety barriers were ideal. Finally, we protected the mezzanine support beams with our KP150 Column Protectors.

Crop’s were delighted with the solutions we were able to put in place. In fact, the safety manager told us; “your products are fantastic! I’ve become a convinced ambassador of the Flex Impact safety barrier system.”

It’s not just Crop’s that have benefited from our great products. Other clients include Coca-Cola, McCain, Delhaize, Mars and many, many more.


What makes our barriers so good?

The reason that so many food manufacturers have been impressed with our products is the amazing amount of benefits they provide.

Our food manufacturing safety barriers are made from a strong polymer that is equal in strength to steel. Plastic safety barriers can withstand cold environments much better than their metal counterparts. Steel oxidises; plastic doesn’t.

To maintain visibility, metal barriers need to be regularly repainted. Our flexible safety barriers are coloured yellow to the core so they never need repainting and require very little in the way of maintenance.

The design of our factory safety barriers means they absorb shock. This substantially reduces damage to vehicles and injury to drivers, whilst still providing protection to the infrastructure.

The modular design makes them easy to install. They can be fitted exactly where needed and combined with our other safety solutions.
